Abstract

A distally based island forearm flap was used in a 93-year-old patient to reconstruct a dorsal forearm defect following tumour resection. Augmentation of the venous out-flow using a microvascular venous anastomosis was required. The expediency and safety with which this island flap can be used is emphasised with a cautionary note on venous drainage.
